Note: Special Eucharistic Prayer Intention

Abortion takes the lives of over 600,000 babies per year in the United States. The upcoming Supreme Court case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is our greatest opportunity in a generation to change that.  The Mississippi law at stake in this case bans abortion after 15 weeks.

This is the case that could overturn Roe v. Wade—the Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal in all 50  states.

For more information about this case, see .

You can find special prayers for this cause at:   Prayers to Defeat Abortion.


One hour with Jesus

As stated by Pope Benedict XVI in his apostolic exhortation “Sacramentum Caritatis” (The Sacrament of Charity), “Eucharistic adoration is simply the natural consequence of the Eucharistic celebration (mass), which is itself the church’s supreme act of adoration… .’  The Veil Removed video is an illustration of this adoration in the coming together of heaven and earth at Mass, as seen by saints and mystics, revealed by scripture and in the catechism of the Catholic Church. Pope Benedict continues, “The act of adoration outside Mass prolongs and intensifies all that takes place during the liturgical celebration itself.”

To grow closer to our Lord, deepen our faith, and strengthen our community, St. Charles Church in Bloomington, Indiana hosts Eucharistic Adoration from 1 pm Sunday until 8 am Saturday, every week.  We are very blessed to have faithful adorers who volunteer their time on a weekly basis to ensure Jesus is never left alone.  The generosity of our volunteers allows others to visit Jesus in their time of need.

Come to me, all of you who are weary and loaded down with the burdens, and I will give you rest. Matt 11:28.
